Good morning Jean,
A little overcast here, but still dry.
I thought it was going to rain yesterday so hastily cut the grass, but we literally had just a few spots, - people could easily have missed seeing it at all!
We seem to have our own little climate just here. A few miles in either direction and the weather can be quite different.
I know what you mean about the leaves. I had to trim a few from a tree in the garden yesterday. The low branches were almost hiding the washing line.

I hope today looks brighter for you soon.

Thanks,Gynne, I love the sun, but dont go abroad
any more insurance is a killer at our age ,cant do a thing about the weather, I suppose we are in a fortunate position, able to shoot of when the forecast seems to be better, counting our blessings,far outway the negative things. enjoy your weekend,

You're right Jean.... A bit of sunshine certainly lifts the spirits, I think.
My in-laws are great ones for seeking the sun.
They have a daughter in Italy and like to visit her, when they can.
...... They do well for their age, ...87 and 90.

Have a good weekend.

Morning all, its dry but damp here, I suspect rain later. I hope it stays dry as I am having a BBQ tomorrow and need to mow the lawn - its getting like a jungle with all the rain we have and its only the weekends I have time to mow it assuming its dry!

I suspect ill need to get a Gazebo or two out of the shed tomorrow to be on the safe side! But you know what its like being British we will BBQ come rain, hail or snow lol.

Hope you all have a good day x

Morning all, overcast here in Norwich, but still a bit of brightness, and dry so far.
Only came down for a cuppa, and that was nearly an hour ago!
Must go and get some sleep.
Hope you all enjoy the day.
